Meet Our Passionate Pet Care Team
Founder & CEO
I started Doggy's Big Day in 2013 as a way to fulfill a dream of being able to work with dogs all day doing something fun! When I realized I could hike dogs for a living, I retired from real estate and property management and started my own pet care company. I love spending time with animals and learning about their funny quirks and personalities. I also completed a course on animal behavior and I try to continually learn about positive reinforcement training and how to apply that to the pets I care for. I'm a certified pet first aid and CPR instructor, and I've been a volunteer and foster mom for the Humane Society of Utah and several other animal rescue groups. I currently have 5 rescue dogs of my own and a kitty. My dream now is to have 20-plus acres of land so I can hike dogs on my own property!

Pet Care Provider
Hi, I'm Kora! I'm an animal lover of all creatures great and small. My experience with animals started with working on horse ranches in rural Pennsylvania where I grew up. I was also the proud parent of multiple rescue snakes, one iguana, and any neighborhood dogs that needed a home. Throughout my experience in the animal field, I have worked in Veterinarian offices, Cat Hotels, and had the pleasure of meeting many amazing dogs throughout my years as a dog walker. I'm also an Herbalist and teach classes on plant-based beauty around Salt Lake City. I love nature and can be found foraging for wildflowers and medicinal plants on the weekends with my two dogs. I'm so happy to be part of the Doggy's Big Day team and cannot wait to fall in love with your fur babies!
Pet Care Provider
The most important things in my life are my family and my dog Piper. I enjoy traveling, hiking, snowshoeing, yoga, cooking, reading, and writing. And I love animals very much! I think this job is a perfect fit :).
I got my dog Piper from the Humane Society. I fell in love when I met her and couldn't bear to see her be put back in the kennel. She came home with me that day!
My favorite thing to do with Piper is to explore our beautiful state. The absolute best thing is when she gets the zoomies on the trail! Usually, it is around running water or small critters! She tries but never gets them!

I am a private dog walker and pet sitter for Doggy's Big Day. I have such a love for animals and quickly become friends with every fur buddy that comes my way. I have been an active foster and volunteer with different county shelters throughout the years and am currently exploring behavior training and creating a safe space for all animals. I have two cats of my own, though I think one is secretly a dog in disguise with how much he loves playing fetch. When I’m not surrounded by fur friends, I am enjoying the beautiful scenery Utah has to offer. I look forward to being able to care for your pet as if they were my own :)
